Real women show grit, like this:
September 18, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a recent interview with Kathie Lee Gifford for NBC’s TODAY show, Justin Bieber’s mom, Pattie Mallette, talked about the pressure she suffered to abort her famous pop-star son.
A victim of childhood sexual abuse, Pattie engaged in drinking, drugs and sex at a young age, ultimately finding herself pregnant at the age of seventeen. Even though she was encouraged to abort, she told Kathie Lee, “I just knew I couldn’t. I just knew I couldn’t. I just know I had to keep him.”
“I didn’t know how I was going to do it. But I just knew that I couldn’t abort. I had to do my best, and I was determined to do whatever it took.” (Source)
I can’t say I’m a fan of Bieber, but this story sure makes you wonder about all those babies that were never born. What could they have become? Superstars, geniuses, virtuosos, saints? We’ll never know.
